Frequently Asked Questions - Members
Membership and Benefits
Associate REPA membership is open to all individuals who are active in the New Hampshire building energy performance field. All new REPA members join as associate members. Once associate members are active in REPA for at least one year, they may submit an application for full membership. These applications are reviewed by the REPA board, and voted on by existing full members. (See separate FAQ on full member qualifications.) Only full REPA members have been vetted for their energy auditing qualifications, and only full members have detailed listings on the REPA web site.
No. All REPA memberships are by individual. However the Consumer Guide listing of full members is categorized by organization. REPA members may designate an alternate in the same organization to attend a training. Within an organization, the maximum number of individuals allowed to attend a REPA training is limited to the organization's number of individual memberships in REPA.
Once your application has been approved, you will be sent an invoice for the membership dues. You may pay the dues online using PayPal, you can mail a check to REPA P.O. Box, or you can give a check to the Treasurer or other Board of Director member at the monthly REPA training.
Qualifications for REPA Membership
Full REPA members should be well qualified to conduct energy audits. Generally this means certification as: (1) State of NH Weatherization Assistance Program Energy Auditor; or (2) Building Performance Institute (BPI) Building Analyst; or (3) Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Rater. This should be combined with sufficient practical experience to be proficient conducting energy assessments in a wide variety of homes.
